Question about Televison & Video
My 52" Sony Bravia HD TV's screen is currently not working properly. Sometimes when I turn it on the screen turns on but is completely black and doesn't work, other times when I turn it on the screen works but the bottom half is completely blurred and there are lines running through it and is not clear or visible. I was wondering what the source of the problem might be, or how much it would cost to replace the LCD? Any help would be appreciated, if you need more information, please reply.
It is not the LCD screen that is bad. It is a problem with one of the control boards. What is the model number?

It can be replaced, but it is probably going to cost you more then the cost of a new TV to do it.

You may ahev failing T-CON board, try having a small fan blowing at the vent on the back of the TV. If you can post pictures it will help a lot.

it sounds like one of your buffer boards are going bad. these are the boards that help put the picture on the screen. there are 2 boards an upper and a lower board. if you remove one and turn the tv on you will get half a screen. see then if you get the lines. please leave rating after you check.
